The Trés Vieux has an average age of 23 years and is a noble cognac. It has rich and complex aromas and flavors of orange marmalade, pears, quince, sandalwood and just a hint of rancio that lingers on the palate. Considered the signature blend of Fillioux, this cognac is a beautiful combination of elegance and strength.
About this wine producer: Among the very best of the small "grower-producers" of Cognac, is Christophe Fillioux proprietor of the small firm, Jean Fillioux. Christophe is the fifth generation of Fillioux to carry the tradition since the firms founding in 1880. Christophe’s vineyards lie in the very heart of the Grande Champagne district. He personally oversees, (if not performs) every aspect of production: harvest, fermentation, distillation, aging, blending and bottling. Christophe is rather self-effacing and modest; “I do not change anything, my father and my grandfather had set the bar very high, my challenge is to stay the course,” he says.
